Finally some common sense from someone in the inner circle. It's interesting that he blames the drummers, though it is hard to believe that this action could not have been taken without at least the tacit approval of Bob and Phil as well. How refreshing to know that at least one person is speaking out against this action.

WAY TO GO JOHN!!

Now I hope the rest of the guys have the guts to let us know where they stand on this issue. I have the feeling, though, that unless they are against it, they will not have the courage to speak their minds.

As I have been saying, Debra has been behind this all along, as she was the one to close down Jerry's music when he passed.

Debra is to the Dead, as Yoko was to the Beatles!
I never liked her from the first day I sat across from her at a dinner some 12 years ago, and will never go back on that.

I have attended over 400 shows just of the GD since 69, another 150 or so of other band members and the Dead.

Until this is straightened out and Debra stops this, and the Band members take her out with a buy off, I will never attend another show again.

I know some on here made fun of me and complained that I was being too harsh, but apparently a growing majority of Dead-Heads are seeing it the same way!

Thanks John and Dead Heads! (and once again, Thanks LMA, you guys are the greatest)!
